It was initially named “RADYO for iPad” where it was replaced with “RADYO for iOS” with version 1.1. RADYO now tracks unlimited number of stations all around the world. “Big Data” for great music!

    RADYO is continuously compared with other apps those having the ability of streaming audio.

    As I’ve heard that RADYO is not better than other applications. I had to see if that’s really correct, so I could make important changes on the application. The result of the test: RADYO is far better than alternatives.

    See it yourself, here is the proof:

    Not enough? Don’t trust me, why don’t you try it yourself on your phone?

  • Answered: Why Windows Store media applications fail on some Windows 8 devices?

    Posted on May 10th, 2013 Cahit Crcioglu No comments

    If you have purchased your computer with Windows 8 already installed on it and if it is a really new computer (not just a batch with operating system replaced), you may never ask a question like this.

    Problem: Applications those supposed to show video/audio, can’t show video/audio ; It may stay at “buffering” state forever, either internally or exposing this status to user visually too.

    Discovery: I have found this problem, it’s visible reason and it’s visible solution while my application was being released as one of the first Windows 8 applications. I have received numerous messages through the contact form of my application and Windows Store reviews related to this problem. After some investigation i saw similar messages on other media-related applications too and when i tried those applications i saw the same problem really do exist on them too. So it was not a problem caused by my application.

    Reason: You (or manufacturer) have probably installed non-Microsoft made display driver. Eventhough the relation between a display card driver and an audio application may not make sense, relation really goes down to Display driver-Microsoft Media infrastructure level.

    Affected products: Any Windows 8 device with an old display adapter (WDDM 1.x) operating with NON-Microsoft display driver. (certified or not)

    Official solutions: None yet. That may be possible, though it has still not been fixed since the beta versions. I have informed both Microsoft (face-to-face, MSDN forums and email) and display card manufacturers (email, forums): They couldn’t solve this issue or they don’t solve this issue and/or they won’t solve this issue. This issue MAY never be solved as i started to think that this is a low-level decision made by Microsoft. I never received information related to this situation, it may be being kept as a secret because of technical or marketing reasons.

    Solution: Telling you to buy a new computer is not a solution but an alternative. You can fix this problem with only uninstalling your custom display driver. If you have installed many custom-display drivers (certified or not) uninstalling once may not fix the issue as you have to revert your display driver to Microsoft’s default display driver (Windows Display Driver Model 1.x)

     

  • Surgery for broken iPhone Headphone jack

    Posted on July 4th, 2010 Cahit Crcioglu No comments

    If your iPhone, iPod or iABC device’s headphone is not working, or if you hear the sound but can not change the song or use the button on the cable at all, then this blog post may help you keep your money in your pocket.

    To make this long story short: Your audio jack may have dirt in it and this may be preventing your “remote control” signals from reaching to the device.

    Fix: Clean it up!

    Warnings: DO NOT try to clean it with a screwdriver, wire or any sharp objects, including needle. Why? You can make holes on the backside of the audio jack and you may also ruin everything.

    How i fixed it: I opened my iPhone. ( doing so may (and probably is going to) void your warranty ) Removed screws till i’m free to move out the audio jack a little. I had to move it out so i can open it’s bottom. Here is what i removed from it:

    ( After the surgery, you see the bullet on the right below the coin )


    How you can fix it: Get your device to Apple and they will remove it quickly. If you don’t want to do that, try your chance and try to remove the dirt with a non-sharp / rubbery object. If you are so confident, you can try sharp objects too, but be very careful. If that doesn’t work, then you’ll have to open it.

    Result: Perfectly fully working headphones!
